Welcome to the Lareau lab. Our research uses bioinformatics and molecular biology to understand how evolution has shaped post-transcriptional gene regulation.

Liana Lareau is a fellow of the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) at UC Berkeley. We are also affiliated with the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology and the Center for Computational Biology.
